Sneak Peeks Week Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Sneak Peek Week!!

I'm so excited!!

We have the fabulous Karen Baker getting inky with us today!
She has been such a tremendous help to me. 
As you may know, she is the designer of all my blog headers, and just wait til you see the packaging that she put together for me!  
I was going to introduce her as an honored guest, but guess what?? 
She's coming out of retirement to be a Girl Friday again!
Woot Woot!
I told you this would be an exciting week!


Today I get to share with you some amazing creations using the very first set I designed.
I love word play, puns and silly sentiments.
This set is a fun play on words, or maybe I should say a fun play on letters!
It was designed very tongue in cheek, and is sure to get a laugh or two or three :)
The Girl Fridays will have you gasping in delight with their awesome samples,
and by the end of this post you'll be thinking
WTF
...but in the most PG of ways :)


Introducing: WTF





Debby Hughes
This just makes me happy!
Can you imagine the initial gasp this card would get and then all the laughs?!
I love the little check-off list and all the fun colors!



Kimberly Lane
This is pure fun folded in half!
I love the fun colorful pattern that she created with the dotty background stamp,
and the stitching is a yummy touch!
Wouldn't this be a fun party invitation?



Karolyn Loncon
Love how she paired her Cameo cut letters with the fun sentiment!
Who wouldn't love to receive a card like this to celebrate some special news?!

This set is super versatile and can put on a straight face when needed.
Check out these beauties...


Suzanne Dahlberg
I just love the beautiful papers that Suzanne chose.
That offset panel is perfect for the sentiment,
 and the placement of those random gems is awesome!
I'd say this card would definitely be worth the wait :)


Karen Baker
I just love that Karen used CAS-ual colors!!
I love the way she used the dotty background stamp!
Wow, that really is fantastic!

Michele Gross
You can create your own pattern background using any of the 4 border strip stamps.
Glittery stickers or even chipboard numbers make a fun focal point for the sassy sentiment.
This is a fun card to send to someone in their 30's...
On the inside you can write "Not you!" LOL!


So what do you think so far??
One of you lucky ducks is going to win this set!
***All you have to do is leave a comment right here***
I'll announce the winner on Thursday :)

In the meantime, please meander over to our blog sidebar and become one of our CAS-ual Friends.  You can also grab our button for your blog to help spread the word about us.

I enjoyed reading your comments soooo much last night!
I'm positive that I feel asleep with a huge smile on my face :)

A few of our international friends asked about shipping, so let me take a quick second to tell you all about that.
CAS-ual Fridays Stamps orders will be shipped via USPS first class mail.
$2.50 flat-rate anywhere in the US
(yes, even you my Hawaiian friends!)
$3.50 flat-rate to Canada

I can't control how quickly your mailman walks to your door,
but I can control how fast I give it to my mailman :)
My goal is to have your packages mailed by the next business day!

We'll be back tomorrow, same time, same place with awesome inspiration from the next set!
What do you think its name might be?

  19. These cards are so much fun! I always think of WTF as "why the face?" (from an episode of Modern Family), but your options are much more useful for cards, especially "who totally forgot". That one is a must-have for me!
